    Answers to WTFWTK 2.72!

    Mattel has once again provided answers to your questions.
    Thanks again to them for taking the time to answer these!
    Check out their answers to your Round 72 questions!

    This round of questions were selected by masterenglish & Jon-O.
    Thanks to those fans for their help!

    -------------------

    1. sailoruranus: Customer service has always been bad but the last few months it seems like Digital River has completely stopped responding to emails and phone calls. What are fans supposed to do when they receive a defective figure and have gone for weeks without a response from Digital River?

    This is absolutely unfortunate and we will pass this comment along to DR. Return call time should be within 48 hours and we will work hard to improve this.

    2. slackrguy: I really enjoyed the Mad Matty Mondays in 2011 and the excitement of not knowing what I was going to get. With the 2012 subscriptions down, are those Mad Matty Mondays gone for good or just less probable?

    That is still up in the air. We will have to see how well the 2012 items sell at an overall reduced quota.

    3. carafa: Will there will be a female character among the six 30th anniversary characters?

    That is yet to be revealed. We have not yet picked the winner of the new contest yet and there were many female entries! And we are not ready to give details on Geoff or Terry's character.

    4. Jean: 2011 and 2012 has finally given us some brand new art for our beloved franchise. However most of it, if not all appears to be digital art. Has Mattel considered having someone create some brand new art with more traditional methods?

    We are constantly looking at new artists and new platforms for art. Anything is possible!

    5. Fabulous: If and when you get to Dragon Blaster Skeletor, will he have a tasseled loincloth (like the cardback) or the furry loincloth (like the vintage toy)?

    Some fans have proposed a removable tasseled loincloth much like Fisto's new belt. A great suggestion and one we will look into for when and if we get to him.

    Geoff's character is a guy...come on. Toyguru said they were going to give him He-Ro's loincloth, but Geoff had them change it to Man-E-Faces'. He's a guy!

    I think Skeletor variants should always use the 'tassled' briefs

    Once Geoff's figure comes into the fold, I expect sales to skyrocket. Even 1% of the millions of fans should be enough to put the MOTUC into overdrive.

    That's the catch with this. Geoff is being trust into a position of expectation, which I think can have unfair results. The reality is that his character isn't going to translate into a lot of extra sales or subscriptions (as we've already seen with the 30th anniversary subs).

    But that's really not a reflection on him since he was asked to submit a character. So I think we should all take his character with a grain of salt if it does end up proving to be less than popular with fans everywhere.

    Oh yeah definitely. I was meaning that last post in a joke-y "Mattel is going a bit too far with those numbers!" kind of way.

    I hadn't even heard ToyGuru mentioned Johns' character yet- rumor has it that the character is, and I quote " a Green Lantern abortion mated with an 80's MOTU knock off".

    Actually, that sounds like it could be really really good OR really really bad.

    About the Mad Matty Mondays question, I can see them having some leftover stock to sell-off. Spector for sure seems to be destined for this. If these 30th anniversary figures tank, you could get half the line in a Mad Matty package, possibly. Or how about the Star Sisters and Spector.

    But what about Shadow Weaver? How many people have actually dropped their sub? How many Shadow Weavers will there be leftover and what will Mattel do with them?

    You will never receive a sub exclusive figure on sale on Matty or on a MadMatty Monday sale. They are exclusive to club members only, so they don't use the stock except for returns of her if something is wrong. The rest TG and other Mattel execs probably give away to certain people after the 30 day mark.
